MOORE, Oklahoma -

A former Moore youth pastor now faces 30 counts of sex crimes against minors, according to court officials in Cleveland County.

Casey Haynes, 29, was bound over for trial on the felony counts in a preliminary hearing Wednesday.

Haynes is accused of asking for and sending explicit images and videos through the app Snapchat to multiple minors. He is also accused of putting his hand under a minor’s shirt and grabbing her breast.

He used to work as a youth minister at Central Church of Christ in Moore. An affidavit said he provided a written confession after being confronted by one of the alleged victims’ mother and was fired from his job in March.

Haynes was arrested in April and originally faced only four charges. In mid-November, the Cleveland County District Attorney filed 25 more counts against him. In a preliminary hearing Tuesday, another count was added, bringing the total to 30.

Four witnesses were called to testify in the hearing.
